Here it is:

According to this article, the East will be colder (and more snow) than last year and the West will be warmer. Above normal snow, but less than last year, is predicted for Rockies and NW.

A much better prediction technology - Horses Don't Lie !!

Bye the way Slider we have predictions of snow down to 2500 ft. in the next 4 nights. We have been 31 degrees the last two nights here at home. Got my ski vices and all down from the garage storage area. AND yes I can spell-VICE is definitely the correct spelling of a device that can grab ya especially in Oct.

Here in MT, we're supposed to get snow on thurs. night, fri., sat., and sun. Last year we got 3 inches in town this same week, then we had a solid snow year. Maybe its a sign for another great year....

hrmf...here in New Hampshire, it's going to be 70 today and high sixties thru the weekend. What does this mean for winter? Who knows -- I guess I'll have to go check the height of the squirrell nests, the stripes on the caterpillars, the thickness of my cats' coats

Warmer is good. In my very anecdotal observations over the years JH is either cold and clear or warm(er) and snowy.

An older friend of mine had a ranch on the shores of Lake Tahoe back in the thirties to about 1950. She has lived in Jackson for about 45 years and watches the weather in Tahoe daily. A few years back she mentioned that whenever Tahoe has a big snow year, JH has one too. She is an astute old lady that is rarely wrong about anything... I hate that about her.

Anywho I predict a warm snowy winter.

/fingers crossed.

Wait while I check the weather in Tahoe!

Maybe a little easier to digest the maps at:

They have maps out to Dec 2009...if you care to believe they can predict over a year in advance.

Silly humans!... tricking themselves into believing that they can accurately predict the weather patterns months in advance!!!

I used to work at local TV station that focused heavily on weather.

I used to always ask the (very highly trained) meteorologists what the upcoming winter would be like.

I was always given the same answer: vague guesses can be made which may have some validity, but if anybody actually says they can accurately forecast more than a week or two out, they are full of it.

BTW, I just clicked on the Accu-Weather link I had in my message yesterday and it took me to today's article by the same guy. Based on a 30-second read, what he's saying today seems different from what he said just a day ago.
